After months of waiting and some competitive pressure from other e-reader players, Amazon finally goes international with the Kindle. Now you will be able to wirelessly download content in over 100 countries. Other than that the 6-inch device is the same. The $279 price tag on the Kindle U.S. & International Wireless is $20 more than the standard Kindle.
Speaking of the standard Kindle, the price has fallen from $299 to $259 and is now called the “Kindle U.S. Wireless”. You can place your pre-order now, and figure out what books will read well in foreign lands on October 19th.
